Inspiring Innovation

We’re experienced in working in diverse relationships with businesses, not-for-profit organisations and public sector bodies. Like you, we’re seasoned professionals and recognise that working in collaboration can reap huge dividends.

Solutions to particular challenges

Tapping into our professional consultancy services is a good first step to developing lasting, mutually beneficial relationships. These services draw upon specialist knowledge and expertise to address specific challenges and find innovative solutions to your business issues. We have a great deal of experience of successfully working with organisations of all sizes, across a range of industry sectors, providing expert opinion and advice, expert witness and product testing and analysis.

Research partners

We understand how crucial research can be in staying ahead of the competition and growing – or maintaining – your market position and that’s why we’re committed to ensuring the highest standards of research throughout our University. Your organisation might be seeking a collaborative research partner, or it might want to contract out a piece of work for us to handle in its entirety. Whichever it is, we will help define and refine your project and ensure you’re working with researchers at the leading edge of their fields.

Through expertise housed within the University and at our 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, we also provide innovation and commercialisation expertise to accelerate the speed at which your new innovations reach the marketplace.

Funding access

To help you navigate the funding landscape we provide the necessary knowledge and support in identifying the appropriate funding for your business. Accessing external funding to support your projects reduces their risk to your organisation, raises your profile and provides access to academic networks that push your research and innovation activity to the next level.

Additionally, we can guide you to more inaccessible funding sources, such as those from UK Government, the EU, charities and other grant-giving bodies, and will signpost and support you in applying for national and international funding.

"...we get to work with some of the brightest students in the country who then return to become some of our highest calibre employees."
-Steve Birnie, Head of Engineering at Borg Warner.
